I have put an email into Mark Liebermann the Greenbrier Contact....
mliebermann@geoffreyweill.com

I believe there might also be a golf package that you can add on as well.

The address for those looking to drive....
The Greenbrier
300 West Main Street
White Sulphur Springs, WV 24986

Reservations: 855-453-4858


For Air Travel/Hotel....
Lewisburg, WV is about 15 -20 minutes away. Although, I dont think there are any hotels outside of the Greenbrier.

You may want to consider Roanoke, VA it should be about 1.5 hours away and for people traveling on the same dates I can offer a car pool.

Beckley, WV is about 1 hour away but may be a more expensive flight

Charleston, WV is about 2 hours away

Covington ,VA is about 20-30 minutes from the Greenbrier an about 1 hour from Roanoke, VA

Shibby and I are at the Irish Pub now at the third table as you walk in.
I got in to the Quality Inn a couple of hours ago. Much longer day than planned. Saw the facility along 64 as I passed White Sulphur Springs. Grabbed a quick average dinner here at the Quality Inn. I was starving so it seemed like a gourmet dinner.

WGNO folks are at this hotel. Lot's of buses and news "trucks" here -- don't know what else to call them.

Big days ahead the next two days. I won't be doing any immediate posting, but will post as often as aI can with news, notes, pics, and personal observations.

This is some exciting stuff here.

En Route To Greenbrier

Heading down this morning.

Left late out of Louisville last night and only got as far as Charleston last night before fatigue took over.

Will definitely be at afternoon practice and tomorrows scrimmage

Excited to see the boys

Have any/many of the players been making themselves available after practice for signing autographs?
It looks like they rotate positions each practice. Yesterday afternoon, it was running backs and linebackers. My kids got Cadet, Ingram, Thomas, Lofton, Ronnie Powell (who is a physical monster), and Todd Davis (rookie from Sacramento State). They sign until the horn blasts and then head inside with the rest of the non quarterbacks.

Just because he deserves it to be mentioned, every player finished the signature they were on at the horn, except Pierre. He continued down the line until he had signed something for those who wanted it. Really impressive display of fan appreciation on his part.
